    I just tried out the integral bounds of phi , it can work getting the correct result. but It cannot convince myself in terms of the bounds of phi, based on the graph on page 1, it should be equal to pi/4. So, how to prove the bounds of phi? Please help with question.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
